Dubrovnik, some call it the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’
Within tall and strong medieval walls lies, is without doubt, one of the most beautiful coastal cities of Europe.
Stepping through the large stone entrance way, through the fortified walls, you suddenly find yourself on smooth marble floors; fountains spurting water from stone mouths; cafes lining the pedestrian-only streets; and beautiful churches and towers in panorama.
There are no cars in the old city, only foot traffic, which adds to its charm. The narrow alleyways that run off the main boulevards in a grid system, they’re filled with restaurants, shops, old homes and photo opportunities galore. At night the city is even more spectacular. Everything in Dubrovnik is just gorgeous.
Dubrovnik ‘s thousand-year-old history shines through in every part of this city. It really is a living museum and a live stage, and has an ideal connection between its historical past and the modern day. The city is surrounded by a medieval wall that is 1940 meters long and is preserved to its original form. They are open to visitors and are the city’s greatest attraction. Since 1979 the town has been under UNSECO protection.
Dubrovnik is mainly a cultural destination, which asides from monuments of interest, offers a series of cultural events and festivals. Dubrovnik is a city that charms, a city that you fall in love with and always return to like new, to discover more unique experiences.
